Shamanic Healing Technique: Soul Retrieval

“Anytime someone says ‘I have never been the same since a certain event’
– and they don’t mean this in a good way –  soul loss has probably occurred.”
(Sandra Ingermann)

In shamanism, one assumes that parts of the soul split off during any kind of traumatic experience, so that one can better cope with such emotional challenges.

Possible triggers are:

  • separation from/ death of a loved one or animal companion
  • intense stress
  • mistreatment
  • fights
  • loneliness
  • accidents

However, with this natural self-protection of the soul, a part of our precious life energy is also lost, and our vitality is thereby weakened. This can then lead to mental and physical diseases or abnormalities.

During a soul retrieval, the lost parts of the soul are retrieved so that the core of the soul is reconciled, and vital strength is once again restored. In this way, convalescence or healing can occur.

“Trauma – physical and emotional – is an inevitable part of life. When we experience traumatic events, it is possible for a portion of the soul to separate, taking with it a part of our essential self. This soul loss can manifest in a number of ways, including illness, emotional arrest, fear, and insecurity. Fortunately, it is possible to enter non-linear time – the timeless now – to recover the lost soul part, heal events that happened in the past, and even correct the course of destiny.”
